2018-2-14  Disastrous surface water incursions can easily occur during mining in the loess area of western China because of the shallow depth and great thickness of the coal seams there. Effective water control and drainage measures are essential to prevent such disasters. Using panels 90102 and 90103 of the Antaibao Mine of the Pingshuo mining area, Shanxi Province, as a case study, we analyzed the ...

Overburden conditions consisting of ultrathick and hard stratum (UTHS) are widespread in China and other countries, but existing surface subsidence prediction methods ignore the strong impact of UTHS on surface subsidence. They are thus not applicable for surface subsidence prediction for coal mining with the presence of UTHS. We conducted actual measurements of surface and UTHS subsidence in ...
